This Week in PLoS

In PLoS Genetics this week, a public-private team led by investigators at the University of California, Los Angeles, reports its "comparative analysis of proteome and transcriptome variation in mouse." Using natural genetic variations to perturb transcript and protein levels within inbred strains, the team quantified peptide and transcript levels and found that the "levels of transcripts and proteins correlate significantly for only about half of the genes tested, with an
